ACERE 2018 – BRISBANE – AUSTRALIA

The 2018 Conference will return to home ground at the Gardens Point Campus of QUT for the main conference program. We are proud to announce that The University of Queensland at St. Lucia will host the 2018 ACERE Doctoral Consortium.

The Australian Centre for Entrepreneurship Research Exchange (ACERE) Conference is the premier Australian-based annual conference dedicated to the growth, support and promotion of entrepreneurship research and practice. It is designed to be a highly developmental and professionally rewarding experience for all delegates. Featuring high-calibre researchers from throughout the world, it’s a stand-out fixture on the academic and professional development calendar.

ACERE is organized by the Australian Centre for Entrepreneurship Research (ACE) at QUT, Brisbane. The conference usually rotates to different locations, involving a local co-host.

As always the ACERE Conference is an annual meeting of entrepreneurship researchers from Australia and around the world – a community of researchers who believe that sharing their current research and their expertise helps build entrepreneurship as a field of research and a force to build a better world.

But also it is a social gathering, of old and new friends, an extended family who have an annual reunion. Come back again this year, or join us for the first time this year – we welcome you with open hearts and minds.
